Dominican Republic Fossil Hunting?!
Steve D. posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsHey-O! This mid western fossil hound is heading to Punta Cana for a vacay with the wife but the fossil hunter in me needs more to do than let the ladies gaze at my miraculous beer belly! haha I'm doing research into the area we are staying and I'm wondering if this would be a good area to sift for fossilized teeth or bone. I know PC is guarded by a reef, so modern shark teeth are unlikely but I'm not sure where this land mass sat throughout our eras. Any advise would be appreciated. I know the Dominican Republic is know for their Amber mines (which would be cool). Any
dinosaur man posted a topic in Fossil IDHi I’m wondering if these are Tube Corals? I have a lot and found them in rocks and sand around my resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, not to far from where I found my fossilized crab claw.
Flying to the US for digging (HC) and visting museums
Abstraktum posted a topic in Questions & AnswersHello everybody This will be a bit longer and I hope you stick with me. So I've planed on opening this topic for quite a while now and I think it's the time to go now. Maybe it's stupid, maybe not. Let's just see where this will go. With 31 and no kids (not yet) it's the best time to do this now. I won't get younger and you never now how long you can just leave for vacation as you like it. I was already three times in the US but never did anything with fossils (as in digging or visiting museums). So why not just go to the US, dig up some stuff and e
North Carolina Vacation with a little Fossil Hunting
minnbuckeye posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsLast week, we had the opportunity to visit the eastern parts of North Carolina guided by a local resident (my brother!!). A great time was had by all. Scenery is spectacular!!!!. We not only relaxed on the beach but we went shelling and fished. Wildlife was everywhere. From wild horses on the barrier islands to the birds. The dolphins were my favorite. I was hoping that the hurricane which recently brought large waves to the beach, may h

Western coast of Ireland
MSirmon posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsHeaded to Ireland at the end of this week. Staying on the Shannon area and spending the majority of the time and activity on the western coast. Any tips for fossil hunting any the area? Any restrictions I need to be aware of? Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated. Im really asking because I had no success last year and am hoping to avoid a similar experience this time. Don’t get me wrong - The trip is amazing with or without fossils.
Taking Fossils on Vacation
pking18 posted a topic in Questions & AnswersHey! I have kind of an odd question. I am purchasing a fossil for a friend as a birthday gift -- between a tip of a mammoth tusk, or a section of mosasaur jaw with teeth. What makes this unique, however, is that we are traveling to the British Virgin Islands (from the United States) for said birthday and I would like to be able to gift the fossil on the birthday instead of waiting until she returns home as we live in different states and I would only be able to ship it to her house and not be there. I am concerned, however, about bringing the fossils with me on the trip as I have
Dinosaur Provincial Park, AB August 2018
pawprints posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsThis summer I took off to the Alberta badlands. My cousins live on the edge, so their home was my home while I was gone all day every day for almost a week. I was in heaven! Nothing to worry about except the snakes. I came across everything from crocodile scutes and teeth, turtle back, an awesome raptor tooth, lots of vertebrae, to an amazing hadrosaur's metatarsal and another huge bone that I couldn't get close to for fear of falling. I tend to take it easy when I'm alone in the middle of no where!! See photos. Can't wait to return next year!!
Going to NJ
mzkleen posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionI am going to Cape May County, NJ the middle of this month. I thought while I was there enjoying the beach and surf that I would also look for some fossils. Is there anywhere around Cape May County, Atlantic or Cumberland Counties that I can go hunt for fossils? I figure while I'm in that area I might as well look around.

Fossil Hunting In Alberta
Wendywendy posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsHello everyone, For my parents 36th wedding anniversary I thought I would surprise them with a fossil hunting vacation as they are both avid fossil enthusiast. I would really like to plan a trip for them somewhere in Alberta or in Ontario but I’m not sure where to send them or how they should go about finding cool fossils. They are not the most competent outdoorsmen so day trips would probably be ideal. Any advice would be greatly appreciated
Going On A Vacation To Uk And Europe, Any Good Places I Should Visit?
Han.T posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionHey all! I am in the midst of planning for a really spontaneous trip(27 May to 15 June) to UK and Europe that me and a few friends decided to go for this summer to celebrate the end of college. I am pretty much the only one crazy about fossils in the group, but they are all happy to accompany me to learn a little about paleo-stuff too. I will be meeting a couple of them who are currently in London(as students studying there) and we plan rent a car and travel to the southern coastal cities/towns of England for about 3 nights. Would really like to visit the Jurassic coast there and maybe even
